My Decks

My husband gave me a bunch of Tarot and oracle decks for Mother's Day/our anniversary, and I have this urge to catalogue my collection. I have a cabinet in my office in which I keep my decks and candles and related books. Seems like I'm going to need more space, or at least a better organizational system before long.

*The Gong Hee Fot Choy is read with a regular pack of playing cards.

Some of these I use every day. Some I use only when led to. And with so many new decks, I'll be learning . . . Each deck is like meeting a new person and getting used to him or her. Some you take to right away—I bonded with the Botticelli immediately—some take more time, and some you might never feel entirely comfortable with (Hermetic and I never gelled). Just as with people, some you like right away, some take a while to get to know, and some you never quite figure out. But each has its own distinct personality.

I do a Lenormand and Color Oracle reading each morning. Sometimes I'll feel led to draw a Tarot or oracle card for the day, too. I do a weekly Tarot reading at the start of each week as well. And in order to justify my collection, I've been known to give readings to friends and via email; they either choose from my many decks, or I choose one that feels right for the reading.

With so many new cards to play with, you can expect to see some reviews popping up over the next few weeks. But remember, these reviews reflect my preferences; you may have a completely different reaction to any of these decks.
